Churn­ing out em­ploy­able grad­u­ates

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

THE global econ­omy and ed­u­ca­tion in­dus­try are in­ex­orably linked. As Malaysia con­tin­ues its im­pres­sive growth, in tan­dem with world econ­omy there will also be an in­crease in de­mand for a qual­i­fied work­force. Em­ploy­ers too are con­tin­u­ously seek­ing suit­ably qual­i­fied and com­pe­tent labour to re­main com­pet­i­tive in a chal­leng­ing op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Vi­sion Col­lege recog­nises this fact and is com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing ac­cred­ited pro­grammes with high qual­ity aca­demic teach­ing in a holis­tic ap­proach. In par­tic­u­lar, it em­pha­sises on qual­ity, af­ford­abil­ity and em­ploy­a­bil­ity. Vi­sion Col­lege is rated fives­tar by MyQUEST, which fur­ther reaf­firms the col­lege’s com­mit­ment to de­liver highly em­ploy­able grad­u­ates while of­fer­ing stu­dents a holis­tic cam­pus ex­pe­ri­ence.

Vi­sion Col­lege strives to equip stu­dents with a solid the­o­ret­i­cal foun­da­tion as well as cur­rent in­dus­trial knowl­edge to pro­vide them real-life learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Its aca­demic team con­sists of ex­perts from the rel­e­vant fields. The col­lege ac­knowl­edges the short­com­ings of to­day’s grad­u­ates in the ar­eas of soft skills. In line with its vi­sion to pro­duce highly em­ploy­able grad­u­ates, it has de­vel­oped a ca­reer-readi­ness pro­gramme aimed at equip­ping stu­dents with the es­sen­tial soft skills re­quired to suc­ceed in the work­ing world. These mod­ules in­clude Ca­reer In­ter­est Test, SWOT Anal­y­sis, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Pre­sen­ta­tion Skills, Crit­i­cal Think­ing, Stress Man­age­ment, Re­sume Writ­ing and Mock In­ter­views.

There is a sig­nif­i­cant cor­re­la­tion be­tween poor com­mand of the English lan­guage and fresh grad­u­ate em­ploy­ment. Vi­sion Col­lege of­fers all stu­dents com­ple­men­tary In­ter­na­tional English Lan­guage Test­ing Sys­tem (IELTS) equiv­a­lent classes as a means to im­prove their lan­guage pro­fi­ciency through­out the du­ra­tion of their stud­ies. Stu­dents will be streamed ac­cord­ing to their lan­guage com­pe­tency and will also un­dergo con­tin­u­ous as­sess­ments. Great em­pha­sis is also placed on stu­dent prac­ti­cal train­ing. Stu­dents of the Med­i­cal Imag­ing pro­gramme will un­dergo two semesters’ worth of clin­i­cal train­ing at renowned pri­vate and govern­ment hos­pi­tals whereas nurses will at­tend a 60-week prac­ti­cal train­ing through­out their three-year pro­gramme. In ad­di­tion, its in-house Vi­sion Di­ag­nos­tic Cen­tre, which caters to state-of-the-art di­ag­nos­tic imag­ing modal­i­ties in­clud­ing ul­tra­sound, x-ray and mam­mo­gram en­sures stu­dents are given ex­po­sure to real-life pa­tient sce­nar­ios to sup­ple­ment their over­all learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The re­cently opened Vi­sion Phys­io­ther­apy Cen­tre and Vi­sion Eye­care cen­tres are well equipped with cru­cial re­sources and fa­cil­i­ties, en­abling stu­dents to be im­mersed in ac­tual set-ups. Many have cited the ris­ing cost of liv­ing as a lim­i­ta­tion to pur­su­ing ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion. Vi­sion Col­lege of­fers a va­ri­ety of schol­ar­ships de­signed to aid fi­nan­cially strapped stu­dents, in­clud­ing tu­ition fee re­bates and free ac­com­mo­da­tion. It has also es­tab­lished a me­moran­dum of un­der­stand­ing with sev­eral renowned hos­pi­tals to pro­vide spon­sor­ships to qual­i­fied stu­dents who will also have the ben­e­fit of job place­ment with the spon­sors upon grad­u­a­tion. With a team of com­mit­ted lec­tur­ers and mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties, Vi­sion Col­lege has put in place the knowl­edge, ca­pa­bil­i­ties and re­sources to pro­duce highly em­ploy­able grad­u­ates.

In­take is in progress for July 2017 in­take.
